Firefighters quickly douse garage fire in Pollock

By Dawn Hodson

A garage fire in Pollock Pines was quickly doused by firefighters on Monday afternoon, preventing the fire from spreading to an adjacent home.

According to Division Chief Tim Cordero of the El Dorado County Fire District, the fire was called in at 2:04 p.m. Monday afternoon at 3080 Leaf Circle and was put out in 30 minutes although crews stayed on scene for two hours to ensure the fire was completely out.

The fire burned down a detached garage and scorched an adjacent structure, but the home was undamaged and there were no injuries.

Multiple engines responded to the fire including Engine and Medic 17 from Pollock Pines, Engine 21 from Camino, Engine 25 from Placerville and Engine 19 from Pleasant Valley.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
